“There have been some concerns of citizens about the operations of the correctional centres bordering on the preparedness of the facilities and operatives to respond to unrest within the facilities and externally, including the congestion in the facilities, particularly with the incidence at the Kuje correctional centre, which I believe should make the authorities deploy more resources to correctional facilities, especially in Lagos.
